Yea-- this doesn't mean they're going to suddenly stop releasing the source-code to CUPS. It's just under a different license. I mean, Apple already develops some software that's permissive and libre (Darwin, for example) and is fine with it that way.
What incentive would they have to close up CUPS?

Also, since Apple owns the copyright to CUPS, they were never obligated to follow the GPL in the first place.
